Something to keep in mind about the forged certificates and other schemes: they were all done in a desperate any – Port – in – a – storm mindset, without any real thought that they would be subject to scrutiny a year down the line.
All Montanans, no matter what they look like or where they live, need broadband Internet for school, work, and connecting with friends.
Some MT politicians voted against expanded broadband, but want to take the credit.
Thank @POTUS and @SenatorTester for expanding broadband.

It's just easier to destroy rule of law than to preserve it.
It's easier to dismantle a government than to use government to improve the lives of the people, particularly when another party is trying to dismantle the government.

As part of that $24M campaign, Heritage Action organized a rally in WV urging Manchin to oppose filibuster reform.
Heritage claimed to be “stand[ing] up for WV values,” but had to bus in activists from hundreds of miles away, across state lines.
The Kochs’ Americans for Prosperity mobilized against filibuster reform, too.
AFP spent at least $500K on ads opposing filibuster changes in states like WV, organized astroturf rallies, and set up the website DontBustTheFilibuster.comthehill.com/business-a-lob…
A federal judge has rejected bids by Mike Lindell (Moe), Rudy Giuliani (Curly), and Sidney Powell (Shemp) to throw out defamation suits they face from Dominion. U.S. District Court Judge Carl Nichols ruled that the suits, which seek billions, could proceed.

You don't need a Ph.D. in Russian studies to see clearly the causal relationship between Ukraine's Revolution of Dignity and Russia's invasion of Ukraine in 2014. "NATO expansion" was not the trigger in 2014. Not the real trigger now.
The media today so often frame politics about winning and losing. Had they been covering John Lewis on the bridge, one shudders to think that they might have “scored” that day as a win for the Alabama troopers who met the marchers with clubs and tear gas. washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/…
One fake elector even boasted at a recent event that the Trump campaign directed the operation.
"We fought to seat the electors. The Trump campaign asked us to do that," said Meshawn Maddock, co-chair of the Michigan Republican Party.

If the former president has no executive privilege to hide evidence of an attempted coup or insurrection, neither do his family or friends. If Ivanka Trump was with Donald Trump as the attack unfolded, she is a material fact witness. I look forward to her testimony.
This is how undemocratic US Senate is:
-15 states with 38 million people elect 30 GOP senators
-California with 40 million people elects 2 Dems
-By 2040, 30% of America will elect 70 senators. 70% of America will elect only 30 motherjones.com/politics/2021/…
